We have finally bitten the bullet and booked our flights for next August. We have booked Virgin Atlantic flights through Continental and paid 2431 for 3 adults and 1 child. The exact same flights booking direct with VA would have cost some 500 more. Does anybody know why this is the case?:confused3 I would have thought that VA flights would be cheaper if you booked direct with VA. Incidentally, we priced up a fly/drive with VH on the same dates and that came to over 4100.

I don't know why either - but there are 7 of us travelling and we have saved about 800.00 all together by using the codeshare...........

I have used my Continental eTicket number to access the VA My Booking section. I can order meals, but can't book a seat. Does anybody know why?
I have tried booking seats through the Continental site, but it won't save the info.

Within every class of ticket, there are different prices depending on how many seats are available. Sometimes the Virgin cheaper seats go quicker than Continentals, plus the $ rate can also effect the price.

You should be able to choose your seat on the continental web site?

I called Continental to ask about it but they couldn't book them for me either :headache: i suppose we should keep trying and maybe one of us will be lucky :goodvibes

Let me know if you manage to book the seats
